Jakson Wine – Kicker – (2017 class) from North Oldham High School (KY) has won the 2016 Ray Guy Prokicker.com National Championship as a Kickoff Specialist. He finished the 2016 year-long competition ranked #1 in the nation with an average kickoff distance of 70 yards. Wine – who has committed to the University of Louisville as a preferred walk-on – also ranks #6 nationally for kickers overall. He will compete for both kickoff and field goal duties for the Cardinals.
“Jakson is the Nation’s #1 Kickoff prospect for 2017! In high school he was a “man among boys” when it came to kicking the football deep and out of the endzone . His powerful leg also produced the “hang time” that college coaches desire for effective coverage.” His kickoffs have proven he has the natural tools to not only kick on Saturdays – but Sundays as well!” –Rick Sang, Ray Guy Prokicker.com Director
